|If you are a cat lover, the cat will find a way to open it.
I did not wait as long as many people do after Spice was gone to find a new cat to share our home. I knew no cat would ever replace Spice. I also knew that I simply 'couldn't keep house' without a cat. I was initially alright while I searched for the new member of the family (I knew I wanted a tortie...but not a dilute, since Spice was dilute) because...even though I cried every day, I still had her bowls out in their normal spot, so it 'looked' okay when I saw them. After the first weekend, my husband took the bowls up. Then it was worse to see that empty place.
I found and adopted Phoebe 11 days after Spice was put down...and, ironically, it was also the day I got the call that I could come and take Spice's ashes home. So, Spice came 'back home' on the same day that Phoebe came home for the first time. It seemed right, somehow.
